Has William Gibson (the scifi writer) ever been to Russia?

The latest novel by Gibson (Pattern Recognition) has a wonderful and exact depiction of Moscow in 2002. I can hardly imagine someone describing a place so close to reality and not having seen it with his own eyes.

Despite this I failed to find a single evidence that Gibson visited Russia himself.

Can someone in the know enlighten me?
